En la espera (y el tránsito) de Adviento

Es una extraña combinación de cosas, pero para mí y para los que están en nuestra organización se ha convertido en una manera significativa de recordar las esperanzas que tenemos y ofrecérselas a Dios”.Del mismo modo, Linda Roberts, su esposa, ha salido con su propia resistencia creativa a la prisa hacia la Navidad [que impone] la cultura imperante: ella hace dibujos a mano alzada con letreros.Por ejemplo, el décimo día de Adviento, uno de estos bocetos muestra la semejanza de un puente rodeado de citas de la Escritura, preguntas y exclamaciones, así como de la afirmación en negrita: “No se preocupe, Dios ha oído su oración”.Los amantes del Adviento de toda clase están personalizando enfoques híbridos de la estación expectante. Están siendo, al mismo tiempo, jubilosos y graves, todos están de acuerdo en que experimentar visceralmente el anhelo, la vulnerabilidad, la necesidad de la esperanzas y el austero deseo de Dios prepara el camino para la transformación navideña.En un retiro reciente en la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, los líderes del retiro, Barbara Braver y el ex obispo primado Frank Griswold, caracterizaron la espera del Adviento como las piezas de un rompecabezas que, con suerte, completaremos para Navidad.“Las personas se afanan mucho por ser íntegras de tantas maneras, por tratar de hacer lo correcto. Nos prometemos a nosotros mismos que haremos esto, o aquello o lo otro y fracasamos. Con tanta frecuencia no dejamos cabida a la misericordia de Dios”, dijo Braver durante una entrevista telefónica el 11 de diciembre desde su casa en Gloucester, Massachusetts.Los retiros de Adviento, [así como] los días de recogimiento y los rituales propios [de la estación] son recordatorios útiles de que “uno sólo necesita a Dios ahora —ni en el futuro, ni en el pasado—; pero vivir en el presente resulta difícil para nosotros.“Especialmente porque en esta época del año estamos a la espera, muchos de nosotros, de las agotadoras realidades de la mañana de Navidad”, añadió Braver. “Los regalos perfectos, si tenemos dinero para adquirirlos, y la comida y la ropa que nos vamos a poner y tal vez que estamos muy delgados o muy gruesos e intentamos que el árbol se mantenga derecho y las agujas [del pino] tal vez ya han comenzado a caerse y aún es demasiado temprano.“O quizá estamos pensando en otras navidades, en quienes estuvieron y quienes faltan ahora y acaso en errores que cometimos en ocasiones pasadas. Hay muchas cosas asociadas en nuestra psique a la Navidad; mucho tiene que ver con lo que aún no es, de manera que esto ayuda a reservar algún tiempo y poner toda la intención en ello, y ser conscientes de la presencia de Dios, de que el reino de Dios es ahora”.Encontrarse con Dios en la oración, o en la poesía o la música o el pan y el vino, o en la Escritura y otros rituales son todos ellos medios que nos ayudan a devolvernos a la realidad del misterio de la presencia de Dios siempre con nosotros, dijo Griswold durante una reciente entrevista telefónica desde Filadelfia, Pensilvania.“Esperar en Adviento ¿consiste en descender a ese lugar más profundo, para pedir lo que más profundamente deseamos? Sí asocio el Adviento con lo que más profundamente deseo porque eso es probablemente lo que Dios quiere darme”, afirmó él.“Y no se trata de un auto o una camisa nuevos o del cuerpo perfecto o de cualesquiera de esas cosas que se nos ofrecen a diario como parte de nuestra cultura”, añadió. “Pero, ¿cuál es el deseo más profundo? ¿Alegría? ¿Felicidad? ¿Deseo un sentido de relación con el misterio de mi propia vida y de que Dios y Jesús sean parte de ella?Así como las lecciones bíblicas de Adviento describen las ansias de un pueblo sometido y derrotado por una nueva identidad y por una renovada vida pública basada en la justicia y la compasión, así los anhelos contemporáneos son “de esas profundas restauraciones del espíritu humano y de las realidades sociales que nos sostienen y nos definen”, dijo Griswold.El rompecabezas se arma mientras “esperamos en silencio, encontrándonos con nuestra propia pobreza y permitiendo que el espíritu se manifieste dentro de nosotros con gemidos demasiado profundos para expresarlos en oración y nos haga conscientes de algunas cosas que en nuestras ocupaciones no seríamos capaces de advertir o de ver”, agregó.Él crea ese espacio necesario mediante la incorporación de música meditativa [del monasterio] Taizé, en lugar de los himnos procesionales y finales de las mañanas del domingo. Los ujieres bajan simultáneamente las luces para acentuar el efecto, explicó.“En Adviento, en verdad hemos tratado, como congregación, de buscar un modo de juntarnos que sea muy distinto del mundo… de llevar el mensaje al hogar de que la atmósfera es de silenciosa expectativa y meditación”, dijo Yaw el 11 de diciembre durante una entrevista desde Southfield.Él también ofrece una alternativa estacional con la celebración de la fiesta de San Nicolás. Este domingo, 16 de diciembre, San Nicolás llegará como parte del oficio de lecciones y villancicos de Adviento de la congregación.“En lugar de ir a los centros comerciales o al club o a cualquier otro lugar donde uno encuentra a Santa Claus, San Nicolás saldrá este domingo, y el coro de niños será parte de las lecciones y los villancicos”, agregó.Después habrá una cena y fotos con San Nicolás en lugar de Santa, como una manera de hacer “de la iglesia un apacible lugar alternativo de la espera y la expectativa de Adviento que sí resuene con algunas de las cosas de la cultura [circundante]”.En Denver, Colorado, en la Casa para Todos los Santos y Pecadores (HFASS, por su sigla en inglés) el vicario Alex Raabe, y Nadia Bolz-Weber, la promotora de la misión, han creado un espacio alternativo con un “salón de espera de Adviento” al aire libre.Ellos colgaron luces de Navidad azules en el patio de la Iglesia Episcopal de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas Episcopal Church], donde la HFASS, una nueva congregación de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América, se reúne a las 5:00 P.M. los domingos.“Decidimos que Adviento se trata de esperar, así que, cuando todo el mundo se reúne, en lugar de sentarse en sillas o de ir a las barras del café, pensamos, por qué no esperamos afuera como una manera realista de recordar que estamos a la espera, no sólo de la venida de Cristo, estamos a la espera de muchas otras cosas, comunidad, solidaridad, calidez. Este salón de espera cumple con ese fin”, dijo Raabe el 12 de diciembre durante el curso de una entrevista desde Denver.“Es realmente una manera hermosa de relacionarnos los unos con los otros de una forma que no se produce cuando uno está adentro, en un ambiente tibio y confortable, y puede compartir con sus amigos…  en lo que a veces puede ser un clima terriblemente frío. Pero eso hace que el calor del edificio despierte mucho más entusiasmo y sea mucho mejor y más adventual”.Los calentadores de propano, el chocolate caliente y la sidra ayudan a alejar el frío, añadió. Adicionalmente, después del sermón, una proyección de diapositivas muestra la respuesta de la congregación a los temas de Adviento de esperanza, paz, alegría y amor.“La gente ha estado buscando entre sus fotos y hemos tenido muchísimas imágenes de mujeres embarazadas” y de un niño de la congregación que no se esperaba que viviera, pero que ya tiene 2 años, puntualizó Raabe.“Eso nos ayuda a captar lo que hemos estado oyendo todo el tiempo, pero de una manera diferente”, añadió. Es otra forma, distinta y novedosa, que la gente tiene de relacionarse y de oír la palabra de Dios”.–La Rda.

Analysts Predict Eight Million Acres to go Unplanted

first_img By NAFB News Service – Jun 17, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Analysts Predict Eight Million Acres to go Unplanted Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSTR Holding China Tariff HearingsNext articleThe HAT Soil Health Podcast- Tough Decisions to Make and Cover Crop Seed in Tight Supply NAFB News Service U.S. farmers this year may not plant roughly eight million acres due to wet conditions. Industry analysts polled by Bloomberg News say farmers are expected to forgo planting on 2.2 million acres of soybeans, and 6.7 million acres of corn. The Midwest is facing another seven-day forecast of near-daily rain chances, continuing the wettest 12-month period on record. For soybeans, the 2.2. million unplanted acres are just below a 2.23-million-acre record set in 2015. Last week, the Department of Agriculture cut its corn planting and production forecast, but made no changes to soybeans, making note that there are still some windows of opportunity to plant soybeans.Monday, the USDA weekly Crop Progress report showed farmers had planted an estimated 83 percent of corn, and 60 percent of soybeans this spring. USDA reports 62 percent corn and 34 percent of soybeans have emerged. For this time of year, the five-year average shows corn plantings are usually finished with 93 percent of soybeans planted.

Accusations that The Bishop of Derry was involved in abuse ‘cover up’

first_img Twitter News WhatsApp Guidelines for reopening of hospitality sector published Facebook Calls for maternity restrictions to be lifted at LUH RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Google+ The Bishop of Derry has been accused of being involved in a compensation deal to cover up alleged child sex abuse.Dr Seamus Hegarty was one of three priests named in a civil settlement after an eight-year-old girl was abused over a 10-year period from 1979.”The Belfast Telegraph reports £12,000 was paid to the alleged victim, subject to a confidentiality agreement.It comes as the head of Ireland’s Catholics apologised for his role in mishandling a serial child abuser.As a priest in 1975 Cardinal Sean Brady was at meetings where children signed vows of silence over complaints against paedophile priest Fr Brendan Smyth.Smyth was eventually convicted of dozens of offences against children.But despite allegations being previously investigated by church officials, including Cardinal Brady, it was almost 20 years before he was brought to justice.He said he wanted to apologise to “all those who feel I have let them down”.Meanwhile, Pope Benedict XVI has announced that on Friday he will sign his long awaited pastoral letter dealing with paedophilia in Ireland.He said in recent months the church in Ireland had been “rocked by the crisis of abuse of minors” and hoped his letter would “help repentance, healing and renewal”.

While hearing a suo moto matter on the steps taken up by both the governments in ensuring preparedness to deal with rising cases of COVID19, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan further directed both the governments to ensure that real time data is updated on the portals dedicated to COVID19. Submissions Made By Amicus Curiae Mobile Application namely “Delhi Corona Mobile Application”, developed by Delhi Government is not being updated regularly. There is a mismatch of the facts and data released by the Government/private hospitals in Delhi especially with regard to the availability of the beds and ventilators. Some of the hospitals run by Central Government/Government of NCT of Delhi are not updating the data. Helpline numbers as provided by Govt. of NCT of Delhi, are not properly working. Nodal Officers appointed by the Delhi Government should be the ones vested with the responsibility to monitor the allotment of the beds in the Government as well as private hospitals, so that these officers can keep a check on the hospitals which are denying admission to the corona patients even though the beds are available with them Real time updation of data should be done by the hospitals or data should at least be updated every 8 hours. There should be no denial in testing and asymptomatic patients should also be tested for Covid 19 immediately. Submissions Made By Senior Advocate Chander M Lall for the Intervenor Suitable direction may be given to the Central Government and the Government of NCT of Delhi to carry out tests of all those having apprehension of being exposed to Coronavirus. Coronavirus may affect several organs of the body and therefore the hospitals having multi-speciality facilities should be made available for the Corona patients. Submissions Made by Mr Rahul Mehra on behalf of the Delhi Government Standard Operating Procedure has also been evolved for receiving calls and effectively responding to the callers. As per the SOP, whenever a call is received, the concerned District Surveillance Officer (DSO) is informed and in case of a COVID 19 case, and the concerned DSO takes the necessary measures. That a special helpline number dedicated only to the Corona positive patients/cases has recently been initiated. Each District has a DSO supported by a medical team to reach out to the patients by making calls or home-visits to assess whether they need home-quarantine or are required to be sent to the hospitals or a nearby quarantine-centre Much of the district-wise distribution data that Delhi receives from ICMR is incorrect, resulting in inordinate delay in the geo-station mapping carried out by authorities/agencies. Thus, there is usually a delay caused in contacting the patient who has tested positive after he has received the lab-report and in the meantime patients tend to panic. Four Grievance Officers have been appointed for redressal of complaints regarding availability of the ambulance, hospital, beds and ventilators, etc. Delhi Government is not updating the data on this mobile application but the ID and passwords have been given to the concerned hospitals and these hospitals are directly uploading the data regarding availability of the beds, ventilators, etc After taking these submissions into consideration, the court noted that there is a need of real time updation of the data by all hospitals including the Delhi Government run hospitals, the Central Government run hospitals and private hospitals. Therefore, the court directed both the Delhi Government and the Central Government to take all necessary steps for ensuring real time updation of the data, without too much of a time lag, so that the information being received by the public is current. The court further directed that if any Committee is appointed by Government of NCT of Delhi, the said Committee will also take note of this fact that there shall bereal time updation of the data on the mobile application developed by the Government of NCT of Delhi. While asking both the governments to file replies, the court directed them to take the suggestions made my the Senior Counsel for the Intervenor which have talked about the availability of hospitals having multi speciality facilities for the Corona patients.Click here to download OrderRead Order Next Storylast_img read more

Students set a challenge for Oxford’s leaders

first_imgA newly-formed group of Oxford students are calling upon the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and the five Pro-Vice-Chancellors to all cut their carbon emissions by 10% in 2010 in their personal capacity.The group is part of 10:10 campaign, which is pushing the climate change agenda by asking for an ambitious but achievable 10% reduction in carbon emissions in 2010. Rather than focusing on distant long-term targets, 10:10 calls on individuals, institutions and businesses to take action now.Dan Vockins, 10:10’s Campaign Manager,spoke at the 10:10 Oxhub event last Wednesday. He said he hoped that Oxford would follow the example set by other Universities who have already signed up. He said, “It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of a huge problem like climate change, but by uniting everyone behind immediate, effective and achievable action, 10:10 enables all of us to make a meaningful difference.”Will McCallum, a student at Wadham commented, “While we will be putting this through the University’s standard governance system, it would take almost a year for it to work its way though. That is why we’re calling on the University’s representatives to take personal action to build the momentum to make the changes that are needed today.”Jake Leeper, President of the Oxford Hub said, “With the Cabinet, Shadow-Cabinet, 150 other MPs as well as Oxford City Council all signed up, I think that it’s important that the leaders of our university also commit to act now. Oxford students have a great record of achieving change and pushing the University forward on important issues. 10:10 is a mainstream campaign, and with groups like Microsoft, B&Q and Pret a Manger, as well as the NUS pledging their support, the University’s key members shouldn’t be slow to act.”last_img read more
